Vegan Holiday Tofu Scramble

December 20, 2017
Only a few dishes are to me as comforting as tofu scramble. It’s both hearty and filling, without being unhealthy. As a matter of fact, it’s super high in protein (tofu and miso!!) and comes with antioxidants (turmeric) and an immune boost (ginger). I love to customize it for the holidays by adding cranberries and chestnuts. It’s wonderful served with fresh sourdough bread or baguette, or just with a side of seasonal veggies and mushrooms.
